History/Political Science paper by Dreisziger, Nandor (all papers)
Survey of the Historiography of Unconventional Explanations of the "Hungarian Conquest" by Hungarian Academics Since 1867
The survey would start with Laszlo Rethy's theory, published in 1871, that the Hungarian language evolved in the Carpathian Basin in the millennium before 895, and probably end with Imre Farago's theory, published recently, that Hungarian place names have thousands-of-years of presence in the Carpathian region of Central Europe. (Réthy was a member of Hungary's National Museum and Farago teaches at ELTE).
My list of scholars is too long to have their theories described in a conference paper but I will try to keep my presentation to 20 minutes.
